Duncan Jones and wife welcome baby boy

Duncan Jones and his wife Rodene Ronquillo have welcomed a baby boy.

David Bowie's director son took to Twitter to announce the birth of Stenton David Jones, who was born exactly six months after the legendary musician passed away following a secret battle with cancer.

Duncan tweeted: "Stenton David Jones. Born July 10th, exactly six months after his grandad made room for him. Love you both so (sic)."

Duncan revealed Rodene's pregnancy in February by tweeting a picture of a pregnant cartoon character with an umbilical cord sticking out of its stomach and wrote: "1 month since dad died today. Made this card for him at Christmas. Due in June. Circle of life. Love you, granddad (sic)."

Duncan is the eldest child of David - whose real name is David Jones - and his mother is the musician's former wife Angie Bowie.

Duncan and Angie have been estranged for over 30 years, ever since her divorce from David in 1980, while the late musician and second wife Iman also have daughter Alexandria 'Lexi' Zahra Jones together.

Although David's family are still coming to terms with his death, Duncan previously revealed he is relieved that he had time to tell his father how much he meant to him.

He said, "I'm OK, I'm good. I was very fortunate, we got a chance to say our goodbyes. It's a weird one for me, I don't really know how to talk about it or what to say about it - other than the fact that we got a chance to say our goodbyes.

"Weird things make me miss him, but it's still early days. I'm sure I always will, but it's tricky. He was a big gravitational pull in my life as far as who I saw myself as. How I separated myself from the world and how I saw myself."
